Knit Picking

From thick, woven boots to hefty knit capes, this seasons sweater set has epic proportions.

 

Chubby is in, at least when talking knitwear-and so ends the feud between fashion’s influential designers and those fond of practicality. Undoubtedly warm, the season’s most-wanted sweaters are composed of wildly thick gauges, braided tight—instead of airy, open weaves, which fans of edge have typically turned out on the runway. The winning look is boxy—at times, challenging a puffer in heft. Though it “works,” it should by no means be reserved for casual denim days; designers showed wooly layers with everything from satin skinnies and chiffon maxis to evening gowns, proving that knits-for-night are perfectly acceptable—that is, if everything else is kept traditionally formal. In other words, like it or not, skinny stilettos are a must.
